“As we work to create light for others, we naturally light our own way.” ~Mary Anne Radmacher
I've given into peer pressure again. In college that usually meant that I ended up at the Penny at 2 in the morning with a bunch of drunk boys who needed a ride home. Sigh...I love those crazy kids and miss those crazy nights!
Nowadays, my friends have grown up and it means that I've signed up to send letters and care packages to a soldier serving overseas!
Two of my real life friends--Pharmer Girl and Almost Gypsy Soul--both adopted soldiers through this program and blogged about it. You just commit to sending a letter a week and 1-2 care packages a month. Pretty easy, right? Now I'm not nearly as crafty as Pharmer Girl and I'm not as good at coming up with fun ideas (Taco Bell sauce) as Almost Gypsy Soul, but my poor soldier will just have to deal with what I can come up with.
I'm working on my first package. I'm thinking a football theme for Super Bowl weekend!
